On Saturday, TuttoB, an Italian website specialising in all things Serie B, published a small story which revealed interest from Leeds United and Arsenal in Marco Carnesecchi.
The 19 year old is a goalkeeper, and given the doubts around Leeds and that position in recent months, and Andrea Radrizzani’s connections with the country and agents there, the Championship club look a likelier destination than the Gunners.
Carnesecchi is owned by Atalanta but has been spending this season on loan at Trapani. The club are currently 18th out of 20 in Serie B, so aren’t having the best of campaigns.
They’ve conceded 45 goals in 28 matches, yet the goalkeeper has still been impressing, and has picked up praise from around the Italian media.
Therefore it would be no surprise if he’s caught the eye of Radrizzani and had his name passed to Victor Orta as a possible for the summer transfer window.
TuttoB are also carrying an interview with Chievo Verona’s Salvatore Esposito, who has played with Carnesecchi at youth levels for the Italian national team.
The midfielder was full of praise for the stopper: “He is a brother, we are very similar and we have the same ideals. We have families with the same values behind us, I see myself a lot in him. He is a great goalkeeper, he will have a great career.”
